How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Tomato Rosemary Onion Jam: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat; add 1 cup onion. Cook 3-5 minutes or until slightly softened; add 1/3 cup brown sugar, tomatoes and 1/2 teaspoon rosemary. Cook, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until almost all liquid is evaporated and jam is slightly thickened. Stir in remaining rosemary.

    Bacon Balsamic Onion Jam: Cook bacon in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat 5 minutes or until browned and cooked; add 2 cups onions. Continue cooking 3-5 minutes or until onions are softened; add all remaining ingredients. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture just comes to a boil. Continue cooking 35-40 minutes until almost all liquid is evaporated.

    Apricot Onion Jam: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat; add 1 1/2 cups onion. Cook 3-5 minutes or until slightly softened; add apricots, 1/4 cup brown sugar, honey and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until almost all liquid is evaporated and jam is slightly thickened.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 400ºF. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside.

    Bake, turning once, 12-14 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread begins to crisp around edges. Serve immediately.
